Overseen by board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Michael Santillanes?whose UCLA and USC credentials have also led him to instruct fledgling surgeons in his specialties?The Skin Care Clinic's staff unlocks the inherent natural beauty in clients with age-defying services. They specialize in minimally invasive cosmetic procedures, including injectables and dermal fillers such as Botox and Restylane, chemical peels, and photo rejuvenation. They also refine entire bodies through laser hair removal, scar removal, and VelaShape cellulite-removal treatments that, like a shy SWAT team, are also minimally invasive.
Dr. Richard Mantell couldn't quite hang up his stethoscope on the coatrack of retirement. He may no longer be working in emergency rooms, but he hasn't slowed down in his semi-retirement?in addition to serving as a flight surgeon, he's also leading a staff of nurses, aestheticians, and massage therapists as the medical director of Forever Young Medical Day Spa. Dr. Mantell brings a tested-in-the-field precision to the spa's beauty-boosting treatments, which range from dermal fillers and laser hair removal to a wide range of signature facial treatments.
"The philosophy of this practice is to combine excellent patient care with evidence-based medicine," says board-certified plastic surgeon Hisham Seify, MD, FACS. Dr. Seify has conducted extensive clinical investigations in the field of endoscopic plastic surgery. He shares his evidence-based discoveries by contributing chapters to medical textbooks and instructing future generations of cyborg physicians at the UCLA School of Medicine. At Newport Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Dr. Seify takes the time to explain the pros and cons of procedures so that patients can make informed decisions concerning their bodies. His services range from face-lifts, tucks, and augmentations to less invasive chemical peels and body contouring.
While patients dream of refined physiques in the waiting room, sunlight pours between gilded curtains. On either side of the window, a flat-screen TV mirrors a painting of Parisian streets rendered in oils and vinegars.
When a new plastic-surgery procedure makes its way into operating rooms, Dr. Semira Bayati doesn?t rush out to learn it. Instead, she takes a step back, waiting a year or more before adding it to her repertoire. She does this with her clients? safety in mind, making sure to offer treatments that have effects far beyond that of a fad. This adds to her credibility with clients, the facet of her professional reputation Dr. Bayati values most.
Whether performing an arm lift, tummy tuck, chin implant, or replacement lid for an original-series Tupperware, Dr. Bayati keeps the lines of communication open so she can address any of her clients? questions or concerns. This level of attention doesn?t waver, even if clients elect to rejuvenate their skin with nonsurgical procedures such as hydrafacials or Botox.
Dr. Faraz Valaie and his team of registered nurses at Pacific Cosmetic Medical Center know that the vast number of aesthetic treatments out there can be daunting. They also realize that while some patients may desire an aggressive image transformation, others want subtle, minimally invasive improvement. Dr. Valaie also helps clients determine which ones are right for them with honest guidance and in-depth education during a detailed consultation.
